Player of the match
I was everywhere after my first few balls. We were always looking to take the aggressive option and it came off for us. I think I had the experience of playing some franchise cricket during the winter.
Being an overseas player there gives you more responsibility and it helps you grow. (On moving from no.3 to opening this summer) I don’t think it has changed the way I do things. I like to play an aggressive brand of cricket.
I think we thought it was going to be a worse wicket than it played. We heard that they felt about being 15-20 short, so that gave us confidence. (Whether he felt like missing out on England’s second-string squad) Not really, I was isolating as I, unfortunately, had COVID19.
It was really nice to see the depth of English cricket doing well and defeating Pakistan. I’m not sure to be honest, just enjoying my cricket and hoping to contribute each time I bat. He (Stokes)has set an example for the entire world to see, hope to see him back soon.
